Hey friends!

 

So I'm finally moving forward in publishing my first novel. I told myself it was going to be one of my goals for this year. I've been working on it, and I feel it's finally ready. I found a company that will work with me to self-publish it, and it seems like it's going to be a good fit for me.

 

But now comes the money. Overall, I'm pleased with the prices, but there is something significant with facing having to pay $2600 for it to be published. The money is comprehensive and includes a lot of different services, including professional editing, cover design, etc. It's a great package.

 

But it's also a lot of money for me. I'm torn. I could go ahead and do it...or I could save up for a few months and do it later...or I could just hold off longer. I don't know. What do you think? Those of you who have published, was it worth the cost? I don't expect to ever really make up the money in royalties, because I'm not thinking I'll actually sell many copies, but I'm okay with that.

That's awesome news! I'd recommend having a chat with Geki if he's still on the GB group and asking him how he went about it.

 

I think, personally, that to have a published book of your own would be such an amazing thing. I remember how excited I was just to get my Honours Thesis printed and bound...so to have something creative that you've written published would be very very cool.

That's actually a great idea about crowd funding, SH. I'll definitely have to consider it. I actually mentioned it to a friend and she said she'd love to be an "investor", so maybe there would be others out there who were interested.

 

Thanks for your encouragement, friends.

This reminds me, I really do need to get a copy of your book, Ami! Is it still only available in e-book format, or could I get a physical copy?

Thanks for the info! I'll have to add that to my next Amazon order.
